Taught a little class yesterday at a crafty birthday party...we made cupcakes using the "Art Philosophy" cartridge and "Dotty for You" paper! Cute, huh? I saw something similar on several different sites, but nothing quite like this, so this is my own adaptation! Nearly all of the others I saw didn't have instructions of how to make them..well, Mandy's did/does, but that's about the only one that looked like a real cupcake. Here are my instructions:
Cut one Box #1 using Font Layer at 3 1/2 inches, glue it to a 5" doilie shape of your choice. Cut two strips of Dotty paper - 2" wide - 1 at 12" and 1 at 6". Overlap them just slightly and glue together. Glue 17" rick-rack to one of the edges leaving the last 1/2" free. Score and fold accordion style every 1/2". Glue ends together. Scrunch together to make cupcake paper shape and gently place over the box on the doilie base. Using a 3" styrofoam ball, cut and pin various 3-D and flat flower shapes using the AP cart. Cover the entire top of the ball and insert gently into the top of the cupcake. Cut elements of your choice and stamp with your choice of inks/stamps (I used AP shapes/oval) and CTMH stamps and Hollyhock ink...sorta matches the Dotty paper! Punch two small holes and insert a half chennile stem. I am very happy with the way these turned out and the kids had a great time at the party!
